Complete Plan Sets
· Preliminary Review – Done to gather information about your site, your budget and your personal preferences regarding style and materials. A site meeting will follow to properly orientate your home maximum potential. Next, information will be compiled and report will be created possibly including a topographical survey, a soils analysis or some other specific geo-technical report.
· Schematic Designs – Created to integrate all the information we have assembled during previous meetings. The preliminary design phase is complete when the schematic floor plan and elevation sketches have been approved by you.
· Design Development – Elaborates the design and establishes specifications for the materials used in the construction of your project. This is the stage at which you will interview general contractors and seek preliminary estimates. If it is necessary to make changes in your plan based on information received from your general contractor, this is the most efficient time to make revisions.
· Construction Documents – These documents contain the information with which you will be able to build your project. Once the documents are drawn, they will be reviewed by you, the engineer, and if possible the builder, to be sure that all information necessary is included.
